Carbon dioxide is a physiologically important gas, produced by the body as a result of cellular metabolism. It is widely used in the food industry in the carbonation of beverages, in fire extinguishers as an ‘inerting’ agent and in the chemical industry. Its main mode of action is as an asphyxiant, although it also exerts toxic effects at cellular level. At low concentrations, gaseous carbon dioxide appears to have little toxicological effect. At higher concentrations it leads to an increased… Expand
A Case of Carbon Dioxide Poisoning from Dry Ice Inhalation
TLDR
This case was an acute CO2 poisoning from dry ice gas inhalation and in spite of an initial severe status, the male patient rapidly improved with no complications following the application of highly concentrated oxygen and fluid therapy. Expand
Carbon dioxide poisoning: a literature review of an often forgotten cause of intoxication in the emergency department
TLDR
It is suggested that precautions are needed when handling dry ice or while working in confined spaces and pre-hospital responders also need to pay attention for the possible diagnosis of CO2 intoxication for their own safety. Expand
A Fatal Case of Gas Intoxication in Silage Pit
TLDR
Both the autopsy and the toxicology analyses suggest CO2 intoxication as the most likely cause for the collapse of the two men, which then led to sudden asphyxia. Expand
Suicide by carbon dioxide.
TLDR
The limited possibilities of proving lethal CO2 intoxications post-mortem necessitate a close cooperation of the involved parties during investigation, and only the synopsis of all findings permits a sound assessment regarding the manner and cause of death. Expand
Acute Carbon Dioxide Intoxication in A Fire Control Facility
Carbon dioxide is noted to be a simple asphyxiant and can reduce air oxygen concentration in a confined space. The injury mechanism of carbon dioxide intoxication was thought to be more than simpleExpand
Asphyxiation due to dry ice in a walk-in freezer.
TLDR
This case illustrates the lethal consequences of improper storage of dry ice and the need to consider toxic environmental exposure as a cause of sudden cardiac arrest. Expand
Study on the effect of different oxygen therapies on rats with acute carbon dioxide poisoning
TLDR
There is no significant difference in pH, PO2 and PCO2 among all oxygen-therapy groups, and the pathological change of lungs in E group is significantly better than that in C and D groups. Expand
Murder-suicide by carbon dioxide (CO2) poisoning: a family case from Berlin, Germany
This report demonstrates how carbon dioxide (CO2) may be a potent weapon in murder-suicide, where the death scene offers virtually no clues as to the lethal modality and the autopsy findings areExpand
A Carbon Dioxide Fatality from Dry Ice
TLDR
The probable cause of the convulsions was carbon dioxide intoxication due to both the dry ice sublimation and the small confined space in which he was hiding. Expand
Asphyxiation death caused by oxygen-depleting cargo on a ship.
TLDR
Management and workers must be taught about the extreme rapidity of developing unconsciousness and asphyxiant death when entering enclosed spaces loaded with oxygen-depleting cargo in ships and tanks. Expand

TLDR
The death of the two workers, caused by a poorly oxygenated atmosphere with a high concentration of carbon dioxide, can be classified under the confined space hypoxic syndrome (CSHS). Expand

TLDR
Findings showed that the cause of death in breathing high concentrations of CO2 is not hypoxia, but the CO2 poisoning. Expand

TLDR
The cause of death in this case was carbon dioxide intoxication, and the value of this value is beyond that of intoxication levels published in references. Expand

An industrial incident caused by a container of liquid carbon dioxide that was unintentionally opened in an enclosed working environment resulted in significant but transient cardiopulmonary morbidity with no mortality when victims were promptly evacuated and given supportive therapy. Expand
